The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience,
but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

“We will not resort to violence. 

We will not degrade ourselves with hatred. 
Love will not be returned with hate.” 

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a time of remembrance established by the U.S. government to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as his birthday is on Jan. 15.

The day is observed on the third Monday of January each year and gives us a day to reflect on the monumental changes that one man set in motion.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. King, a Baptist Preacher and American Civil Rights Leader, preached non-violence and worked to bring about social, political and economic equality for African-American citizens. His eloquent pleas for racial justice in the 1950’s and 1960’s won the support of millions of people both black and white. He won the Nobel Peace prize in 1964 for leading the black struggle for equality through non-violence

King was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, posthumously in 1977 for his efforts in fighting prejudice. And in 1986 The United States Congress established a national holiday to honor Doctor King.

 Take a moment today and think about Martin Luther King Jr.  He changed all our lives!
